Stitching update & a splurge..

I have been pretty good about buying new stash....UNTIL...I got up yesterday and got the "urge" to "splurge"..lol I got in the car and off the Colorado Springs I went to my LNS, it's a 40 mile drive one way which is prob a good thing, I haven't been there in about a year so I think that's not too bad. They had a new lady working there and she wasn't very nice at all..she was pretty much a bitch to be honest. I don't think people with that kind of attitude shouldn't be working with the public. The other ladies were nice though. I picked up a few new patterns; fell in love with the Independence Day Liberty pillow, they had one on display so I had to get it. And the Sam Sarah model sold me on this new book, well the book was published in 2004, I've never seen it. And I couldn't believe WDW is putting some of their threads in spools now. I didn't need any of the colours but use this one often (love pumpkins) and wanted to get it to show you ladies incase you hadn't seen them yet. Their expensive it was $5.25. I'm still working on Needleworker, I haven't been stitching on it much lately, I am going to start my Liberty pillow when I get home from work today. I think I need to take a break from Needleworker for a few days; maybe stitching something new will get me going. Hope everyone is doing well and had a great holiday weekend. Here's a picture of Scarlett eating a hot dog. lol Ashley found out she's having a boy. :) So, another grandson is on the way, his name is Colton :). She's due October 16. I'm looking for a Charles Craft stocking to make for him. I want the blue one with snowflakes but can't seem to find it. Hugs, Shar

I'm thinking like Dawn - Yummy on that hotdog!! lol Love all your new stash! Sorry you had a nasty shop lady. I just hope she had a bad day and is not like that all the time.. That makes for a bad shopping experience for the customer.
